TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) – Alabama Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry and defensive lineman A’Shawn Robinson are heading to the NFL.

The two juniors announced their intentions to enter the draft on Friday, four days after helping lead the Crimson Tide to its fourth national title in seven seasons.

They’re the latest underclassmen to leave Alabama, which has had 14 juniors leave in the last four years.

Henry set Southeastern Conference season rushing records with 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns. The projected early-round pick won the Doak Walker and Maxwell Awards.

Robinson was an Outland Trophy finalist and Associated Press All-American. He’s projected as an early first-round pick.

Robinson had 3.5 sacks and a team-high 10 quarterback hurries.
